THE Union Hotel at Netherby, belonging to Mr. J. Franklin, of Lorquon, was completely destroyed by fire on Saturday night. A lamp in a room leading to the bar exploded, and the paper of the walls and ceiling ignited. Though there were over thirty men on the premises, all efforts to stay the progress of the flames were ineffectual, and in less than half an hour the roof fell in. It was with much difficulty that the children, who were in bed, were rescued. The hotel was insured in the Commercial Union office for 1800.

The Horsham Times (Vic. : 1882 - 1954) Fri 8 Dec 1899 Page 2 The Horsham Times.
The following account of a sensational bolt at Jeparit last Monday is given by the Warracknabeal "Herald ":-While the groom (in the buggy) was walking the horses waiting for Mr. James Franklin, of Hopetoun House, the animals became restive, finally getting into a gallop. The groom stuck to the reins, but turning a corner too quickly the vehicle was overturned. In this way the horses continued their career, the buggy being dragged along for a considerable distance on the seat iron. Turning another angle the buggy in an extraordinary manner was turned completely over on to the wheels again. The horses still galloping madly on took their course along a road used for water-carting leading straight into the river. About 30 feet from the river bank, however, a fence has recently been erected, with a slip panel, and which connects a paddock on either side. This, probably, saved the horses' lives, as coming down an incline at a rapid rate, in endeavoring to get through the opening, the vehicle crashed into the post, smashing-the wheel to atome, an temporarily checking the horses,who thus were set free. Had they negotiated the opening safely, they must inevitably have gone into the river, and both probably been drowned. The groom escaped with a severe shaking, but the buggy was considerably damaged.

Funeral Under Difficulties.
Dimboola to Rainbow and Warracknabeal to Hopetoun are the only railway lines remaining interrupted. Amongst the poor families at Horsham many are without a stick of furniture, and others have only the clothes they are wearing. Both banks of the river have been damaged, and the water is pouring through the breaches. Unless it subsides soon it is feared that the weir will give way.

Mr. G. Koop, of South Brighton, had his sheep washed from one paddock to another, and only saved 60 out of 300. Mr. R. Mills lost 160, and Mr. McGee lost a great number.
The funeral of James Franklin, in Warracknabeal, was carried out under difficulty, the flood being at its height. On the cemetery road the cortege was compelled to go through private property to escape the onrushing waters.

The cemetery at Kerang was saved after continuous work.

The damage by floods at Horsham is estimated at over 5000. Some of the flooded cottages present a pitiable sight, many of them having been inundated to a depth of 5ft. The walls have been denuded of paper, the furniture has ruined, and in some instances the weight of water has broken through the weatherboards. Many of them are dangerously undermined.

3 May 1854 - Born at sea on board the Barque Trafalgar near South Australia

I think this is how it goes, but this is a tangled story. There seems to be some name interchanging.

John married Harriett Lavinia Thompson b.1850 NSW- d.1903 Chillagoe Qld.

Their eldest child died in Victoria, and then they seem to have lived in NSW for some time. John Trafalgar Franklin was bankrupted in July 1893 address given as "The Pocket, Brunswick, NSW". They seem to have moved to Queensland. Births of children do not seem to have findable registrations under the surname Franklin or Thompson. At some stage John's name seems to have been changed to William John Franklin and Walter John Franklin. His children sometimes give his name as John Trafalgar and yet it appears as William John Franklin and sometimes Walter John in other documents. I have been unable to find a marriage for Harriett Lavinia Thompson and a Franklin to date.

Death of An Old Pioneer.
Died at Mareeba on Tuesday afternoon an old identity of North Queensland, and a man of sterling worth, in the person of Mr. William John Franklin, at the age of 64 years. Deceased was for several years connected with the mining and cattle industry in the Chillagoe, Mt Garnet and Bamford districts, where he was highly respected. During recent years he had been a resident of Cairns, where he conducted the business of the Central Hotel in conjunction with his son in-law, Mr. Mark Olsen [Oleson]. The late Mr. Franklin was proceeding to the Tommy Burns mine, where he still held considerable interests, but he was taken suddenly ill on Thursday evening at Mareeba, and became an inmate of the local hospital, where he gradually sank and passed away on Tuesday in the presence of various members of his family, consisting of Mr. and Mrs. Mark Olsen [Oleson], Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Franklin, and Mr. John Franklin. The remains will be conveyed to Cairns by train this (Wednesday) morning, and the funeral will leave the Central Hotel at 4 o'clock this afternoon.

Mr. Hobday, who appeared for the petitioner, said that the parties were married in 1895 at Swan Hill. In 1899 they were living on the Darling River, in New South Wales, and respondent left her to look for work.
Petitioner had heard from him only once. Mr. Justice A' Beckett said that some difficulty had arisen in his mind as to the question of domicile. He would grant a decree nisi, but he doubted if any other judge would do so. (Laughter.) Care was necessary in preparing cases of this sort.
